But I don't. Rover could finally introduce some new design elements.

Well I think it's sexy. The overall profile's nothing new, but it's very well-executed. The DLO is beautiful, love how it comes to such a sharp point in the rear. The chrome exhaust surrounds are fun, too. The front, as is typical of Rover these days, seems a little confused (and that grille is undoubtedly an Audi ripoff), but the car gets nicer as you move further back, and it looks tough with the slight rake in the stance. I'd drive it, fo sho.

Time to put Rover to sleep. Eight years old and not getting any better.

Here here SV3. People seem to have forgotten that Rover is expected to compete equally with the likes of Ford and Vauxhall - without having access to anything like Ford or GM's financial and engineering muscle. It's worth remembering that the 1995 Rover 200, the car that morphed into the 25, was developed for a little over 200 million. I think that speaks volumes about Rover's ability to design an excellent product on a shoestring budget.<p>Rant over <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/2cool.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/bangin.gif" BORDER="0">

i don't think Rover could design new car on tiny budget.. that's why they sell a piece of land nearby the Longbridge..

There are some pics of the Rover 75 Coupe's new interior design in the UK's Sun newspaper today, along with an exclusive first drive report, and first leaked images of the new RD60. <p>And here they are:<p> <IMG SRC="http://photos1.blogger.com/img/18/2756/640/_r75_Int.jpg" BORDER="0"><p> <IMG SRC="http://photos1.blogger.com/img/18/2756/640/0%2C%2C2005061063%2C00.jpg" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

hmm, the interior doesn't seem too different, although the current one is great anyway from what everyone says.<p>at least they dropped the awful aftermarket radio controls <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/pukeface.gif" BORDER="0">

Looks very Nuvolari-ish in the roofline. But I really think they should change their grille - it isn't too flash hot.

Grill needs more crome
